    CNBC's Squawk on the Street co-host Simon Hobbs outed Apple CEO Tim Cook live on-air
    During a segment about the dearth of openly gay CEOs, he said, 'Tim Cook is fairly open about the fact he’s gay'
    Cook has never confirmed nor denied that he is gay
    Hobbs's comments were met with silence from the rest of the panel

It's the CEO of Apple - someone who is basically worth all of the money, ever. He could probably pay off the entire deficit from the change he rakes out from the sofa. If he doesn't want to be outed, you don't out him.

Is Obama going to hold a news conference to congratulate him? :beer:
"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

Media obeys the money. So does the White House, but they cost less.

Everything obeys the money. We worship and idolize wealth.

Not only will Obama congratulate him, he would more likely than not, propose to him at the same time.

Uh, this was not a secret nor has it been for some time.  Everyone knew that Cook was light in the loafers.

When he took over Apple, there were even articles about how great it was that a homosexual was running such a large company.
